Business Briefing: State Of The Investment Landscape

About This Webinar

It’s hard to believe it was just 12 short months ago that we were coming off the high of the best year in beauty investment and M&A deal activity in at least a generation, perhaps ever. Despite being in the throes of a still roiling COVID pandemic (remember that?) in 2021, 2022 proved to be a bit more wily for investors, the capital markets, consumers, and, heck, even the federal reserve to nail down and embrace dealmaking with as much enthusiasm as they did last year. Join us for a look back at the activity of 2022 in the beauty industry and what's in store for beauty in 2023.
